empowr’s President resigns; new President sworn in

Hello everyone,

In case you missed his announcement:  

Your democratically-elected President of empowr, Marcus Bradley, has offered his official resignation.

Unfortunately, Marcus has been plagued by health problems, as well as family issues, that have made it difficult for him to give empowr everything he believes it deserves.

Having worked closely with Marcus, I can tell you that his heart was 100% into empowr. He believes in the empowr mission as much or more than anyone else, and even his resignation stands only as proof of that.

He did not want his health and family issues to get in the way of empowr’s success. We will all miss Marcus.

Thankfully, when Marcus began his term, he nominated Brian Woosley as his Vice President. As you know, Brian was the first democratically-elected President of empowr, and knows the ins and outs of empowr more than most people.

With Brian as President, I am confident that empowr will be in good hands until our next presidential election, in March (2017).

 

                                                     -------------------------------- 


empowr's progress must continue


As we have discussed at length recently, together we have much to do...

... continuing to improve empowr’s features and build the empowr economy...

                ... with a great deal of sense of urgency.


Therefore, please join me in offering President Brian Woosley your support and well-wishes, as he now assumes the responsibility and the top leadership role within empowr.

Pretty strange happenings at Empowr....isn't that 2 President's in a row that aren't serving for strange reasons....then the best we can do is with what we had in the first place. Something smells sour.... sorry, but my honest opinion and feelings.

Each president serves for only one year.

Randy, only because you want "honest opinions and feelings":

"Sour" and "open alpha" (which is the current stage of the empowr project) -- they do not go together,

I ask you to stay positive, but if you cannot be positive or constructive, then I insist that you take your negativity and leave. Perhaps come back when we are post-beta.

The bottom line is that we (employees, success coaches and citizens) haven't all invested so much into this project only to have bottom-feeders show up and spew their negativity all over the place.

Mila Sorensen

Hi Randy, let me try my hand at this. We understand that this may not be ideal or expected, but empowr is still evolving, improving, and growing. With that said, nothing is perfect. As JC says, empowr is still an "open alpha" which means that it's still in an experimental stage. When things don't go as expected, we have to roll with the punches and keep moving forward. Democracy is such an important aspect of why the empowr platform was created--it's important that we work together to remain positive and productive ctizens If we do that, empowr is sure to succeed and all aspects of the platform will evolve as they should. While this wasn't what we anticipated, we're moving forward and will be supporting Brian, as we know he will do his best to make sure empowr succeeds.
